    if the pc has a suitable graphics card, it shouldn't be a problem

    i believe you'd just need an adc->dvi converter to go from the adc monitor to the dvi input

    yes it will work and you need a dvi port and a apples adc-dvi adapter. but windows wont recnonize the standard rez so it will bea little stretched. plus cleartype still looks like trash under windows xp

    clear type rounds off the edges of the fonts on the screen. Apparently the resolution of the Apple LCD's aren't too friendly with it... *shrug*

    cleartype works fine with crts and your standard PC LCD though :(
